Obviously we're cooler than 1SO. Wings of Desire is an extraordinary film. LA Confidential is good, but it steals its plot twist from Minority Report :P
I don't remember the plot twist for LA Confidential being all that surprising or twisty. Then again, I tend to underrate plot twists.

Still that's 6 Green.

I find myself lately drifting more towards the challenging viewpoints of Martin and away from the abusive relationship I have with FroHam.

This was a tough one, and I'll have to watch my top three over again to really get a solid vote:

1. Princess Bride
2. Wings of Desire
3. Ikiru

Not The Princess Bride.
Boo

I am having real trouble picking between:

L.A. Confidential
Pink Floyd The Wall
The Princess Bride

Love them all and they are so different to each other, makes it harder to pick between. I will go with the Wall, because the music is so awesomely good.
